Government Subcontract Rider


I. Incorporation of FAR and DFARS Clauses:

When the Products or services furnished under this Order are furnished in connection with a U.S. Government prime contract or subcontract, the following Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Department of Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS) clauses identified below shall also apply to this Order, as required by terms of the prime contract or by operation of law or regulation. Said FAR and DFARS clauses are incorporated into this Order by reference, with the same force and effect as if they were given in full text. The effective version of each FAR or DFARS clause shall be the same version as appears in Purchaser’s prime contract, or higher-tier subcontract under which this Order is issued. In the event there is no such equivalent clause in Purchaser’s prime contract or higher-tier subcontract, the date shall be the regulatory date in effect as of the date of this Order.

The applicability and interpretation of each clause are subject to any specific parenthetical statement following its title. In the event of a conflict between these FAR or DFARS provisions and the terms of the main body of this Order, the terms in the main body of this Order shall control. The Contracts Disputes Act shall have no application to this Order. Any reference to a “Disputes” clause shall mean the “Disputes” clause of this Order.

Seller agrees to negotiate in good faith with Purchaser to amend and incorporate into this Order any additional clauses as TEC may deem necessary in order to comply with the clauses of its prime contract or higher tier subcontract. If any such amendment causes an increase or decrease in the cost of, or the time required for, performance of any part of this Order, an equitable adjustment shall be made by Purchaser pursuant to the “Changes” clause of this Order.

II. Interpretation Notes:

In all FAR and DFARS clauses listed below, the terms “Government”, “Contractor”, and “Contracting Officer” shall be revised to suitably identify Purchaser and Seller and affect the proper intent of the clause, except where further clarified or modified in the parenthetical that follows each clause. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall be construed to mean that Purchaser may modify or limit any rights the United States Government may have as set forth in the FAR and DFARS clauses below. Nor shall anything herein be construed to provide Seller with rights that only the United States Government has the authority to grant or perform, such as in FAR 52.227-1 and FAR 52.227-2. All Seller contact with the prime contract or any higher-tier subcontractor relating to this Order shall be through or coordinated with Purchaser.
